A house is a place for shelter and rest, a place for playing and working, and a place for a family to live and love. But a house in Thailand looks nothing like a house in Mongolia, and the houses in Togo don t look like the houses in Russia.

In the book, Precious describes how the 'Colour Purple' is one of her favourite books well, in my opinion 'Push' is the modern day 'Colour Purple'- It is a difficult read, but my advice is to persist, its well worth it in the end/5(). Push, now known as the book that inspired last year's much-renowned hit film Precious, is the first-person account of the teenage life of Claireece Precious Jones, a Harlem teenager who as of writing this account has given birth to two children, a boy and a girl, both products of her rape at the hands of her biological father/5. Precious is a very psychotic book. The author has taken a town of deeply disturbed characters and weaved them into a dark plot. Each of the characters bear immensely flawed personalities and they prey on one another like vultures/5. That’s why we’ve brought the Dream Book to you early.
